What Anti-inflammatory supplements and to reduce cholesterol levels do you prefer?
I had some bloodwork done not to long ago that show elevated cholesterol, CRP and Fibrinogen levels - - all out of range HIGH. Yes, all high risk for a cardio event especially with strong family hx of heart dx and strokes. I'm a Ticking time bomb here and I'm sure mostly caused by 5 yrs on Femara. Don't drink, smoke, not obsese or over weight and exercise regular. Conservative diet no red meat in past 6 years, minimal dairy to no dairy, organic poultry, wild seafood, organic veggies, fruit, minimal bread, lots of EVOO and salads, oatmeal. etc. Not much more that I can do with life style changes??? Also, I take obvious supplements for Ca, Mg, Vit D, Vit C, Curcumin, Omega 3, CoQ10, Glucosamine, acetyl L Carnitine, a few others. Drink lots of green tea my favorite.
(Note - Oncologist wants me to stay on Femara a few more years but I need to get these abnormal labs under control.) I do not want to be placed on any statins. Wondered about Red Yeast Rice, more Vitamin C, etc. Read warning about taking Bromelain for individuals taking daily Aspirin which I do already. I've an appt with my Nutritionist and have a few questions to ask regarding supplement changes. I just wondered if anyone else has some additional ideas that would be helpful to discuss during my appt.
